Shameless plagiarism is going on here. For I'm sharing a video posted the other day by my friend Aril at Gnat Bottomed Towers. We'll be meeting up soon on one of our regular London trips. I'm looking forward to that.
As mamy of you are aware, people with dementia make up the majority of those that I work with in my role as an occupational therapist in an older adult mental health team. It is a privilege and indeed, it feels as if I have found one of my niches in life by being alongside them at various stages of their journey . I am always learning, often very moved by their experiences and stories.
Here Alzheimer's Research UK are asking for money. But making a financial donation is not the only way you can help. You can also do your bit for finding ways to beat dementia, of which Alzheimer's disease is just one type, by signing up to become involved in research through Join Dementia Research. Anyone over 18 can sign up even if they are not affected because they have a diagnosis or are a carer themselves. Go on. You'll make my day if you do!
